Audio Post of the Day: World in Their Pocket

On days when you're despairing of the power of the ruling class, who, Bush's incompetence notwithstanding, can seem all-powerful and impossible to overcome, it's important to remember one thing...they've got the world in their pocket, but their pocket's got a hole.

"World in Their Pocket" was recorded in 1975 by the late great folk singer Malvina Reynolds, who was 75 at the time. It's from the album "Malvina Held Over."

Have a listen, and get inspired to be the hole.

And, don't forget, I'm still seeking feedback on your experiences with this particular mp3 delivery system, suggestions for better ones, and of course I'd welcome feedback on the whole idea of posting interesting old songs here (and on the particular songs themselves). I have practically an unlimited supply (not all digitized yet, of course) - hundreds of LPs and 45s, many of them out of print and otherwise unavailable.

Update: Courtesy of a commenter, I found what I think is a better site that allows embedded mp3s - esnips.com. Let's try that out (above).
